As we enter the dog days of summer, we celebrate the return of Dog Days Westonka. The pet-friendly festival will take place on Saturday August 13th, from 9am to 2pm at Surfside Park and Beach in Mound. Don’t miss the cutest puppy contest. At the last Dog Days event there were 60 contenders. The festival will also have a pet expo, food trucks, a dock dive event called ‘Splash for Cash’ and doggy paddle boarding demos with the opportunity to give it a try with your dog.
